Scotsar Web Design - another Rural Key Fund success in Restormel

Scotsar Web Design has received investment of £30,000 from the Objective One Rural Key Fund and Restormel Borough Council, with help and support from the IAP Team at Restormel Regeneration Partnership.

Scotsar Web Design and ePublishing is a new social firm that will design, code and promote web sites to enable them to achieve a top ten-search result in search engines. It will also run advanced web design courses and give in-house work experience.

The project will create new opportunities for employment, improve access to training especially for those who are most disadvantaged, and develop a new social economy enterprise.

Scotsar Web Design and ePublishing intends to employ at least 20% of its workforce from the disabled and/or disadvantaged sector and gain at least 50% of its income from sale of goods or services. Ultimately, sales will be generated by telesales supported by sales representatives and IT advisers, programmers and designers.

Graham McGrath, Acting Chief Executive said: "We are elated that we have been awarded the investment from the Objective One Rural Key Fund. We have been working on the project for the past two years and with the help of Restormel Regeneration Partnership we have been able to secure the funding to make the project come alive."

Christine Bainbridge, Restormel Regeneration Partnership's Programme Manager says: "We are so happy that we have been able to assist with this project and look forward to working with Scotsar in the future, helping them to establish this innovative business."

Editor's notes:

Restormel Regeneration Partnership

Restormel Regeneration Partnership was established in 2000, with the object of making Restormel '…a more prosperous and lively area..' by making maximum use of the opportunities for regeneration
Integrated Area Plans (IAPs) are the way in which Objective One can help communities. These are the plans that integrate the economic, social and environmental aspects of the Objective One programme into a framework for use in a specific area. There are eleven plans throughout Cornwall, three of which (St Austell Bay, China Clay Area, and Newquay & its Rural Hinterland) are covered by Restormel
The Objective One (European Regional Development Fund) funded Integrated Area Plan team was established in February 2001 to deliver the three IAPs for Restormel. It can help with developing and supporting community based projects who wish to apply for Objective One funding
The RRP team is funded by Restormel Borough Council, Objective One European Regional Development Fund, the South West of England Regional Development Agency, Imerys, Cornwall County Council and Health Action Zone
